EVENT: ASICS LA Marathon 2013
EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2013
Rick and I are running the LA Marathon on March 17th as a two-person charity relay team to support Grassroot Soccer! Honestly, I hate running, unless it's after a soccer ball, but I’m willing to do it because I love Grassroot Soccer. Rick―who loves to run, so it’s definitely not as impressive―is being a very supportive big brother by agreeing to be my relay partner. Go Team Thompson!
I started working for Grassroot Soccer (GRS) in February 2011, and am extremely impressed by the work we do to fight HIV/AIDS. GRS’s mission is to use the power of soccer to educate, inspire and mobilize communities to stop the spread of HIV.Since 2002, GRS has graduated over 550,000 youth through our HIV/AIDS education program and hopes to reach 1 million youth educated by World Cup 2014.
Please support Team Thompson in the LA Marathon! You can DONTAE on this page or send a check made payable to Grassroot Soccer to P.O. Box 712, Norwich, VT 05055 (be sure to include “Team Thompson” on the memo line so it is attributed to our race!).
Thank you so much for your support!
Tori (& Rick)
